NOTE: FoodLab Detroit is no longer hosting monthly Office Hour sessions. To find out more about what programming we're currently offering see our calendar, Upcoming Events page, or get in touch with us at programs [at] foodlabdetroit.com.
To address the questions and day-to-day needs of our members, we offer a variety of technical assistance opportunities to facilitate on-going business development. Since in-person support is often the most effective, we host office hours. FoodLab staff are there to talk about your business and product and next steps, connect you to useful contacts, and, ultimately, let you know you're not in it alone.
Our 2017 Office Hours schedule is below. We'll be offering Office Hours on First & Last Fridays of each month from 9-11AM at the Green Garage (4444 Second Ave, Detroit).
